I made a twitter post last Friday asking APAC where they stood on the 4 (now 5) performers filing a complaint against LA Direct and Derek Hay, seeing that APAC benefactor Karen Tynan is the attorney for LA Direct. Of course APAC didn’t respond but Charlotte Cross did. Her response was defending Karen Tynan and saying I didnt know what I was talking about and that Karen wasn’t LA Direct attorney. She also stated that Tynan had “helped her many times”
I’m sure Alan Gelbard had kittens when he read it and quickly told Charlotte to STFU, and she did she also deleted the tweets, but not before I got a copy.
You see if Karen Tynan has indeed helped Charlotte Cross, even once, then Tynan must recuse herself or face ethics charges.
In all honesty all I was pushing for was for APAC to tell me again how they are not the puppet of the FSC, even though we all know that they are.
I can say this, it has been years since I had a performer complain to me about LA Direct and given the unnecessary hostile reaction of Ms Cross, I suspect that at the very least on her part its all just attention whoring. Its more likely to me that Charlotte is the problem, I dont know the other girls and I will leave it to the Labor board to determine and report accordingly. Yes you read that right this is a complaint to the agency that licenses agencies and will be a hearing under their jurisdiction, it is not at this point a court case.
In the era of the #metoo (why did they choose to call it pound me too anyway) it’ll be interesting to see how this one plays out.
